I Have a Giveaway!!!

***ETA: This giveaway is for anyone who would like to enter***

So, perfectly in time for Christmas or to give a little gift to yourself, I'm hosting a giveaway!  YAY!  I love giveaways.  This giveaway is sponsored by Purple Toes Jewelry!  Donna (Etsy seller name: dryan327) is so wonderfully generous that she is giving away THREE prizes to THREE lucky winners!  How exciting!

Really be prepared to be blown away by this shop!  It is GORGEOUS!  She offers a little bit of everything like simple, really ornate, whimsical, elegant and vintage looking jewelry!  I love how all the gems sparkle in her shop.  There's a little something for everyone be in a little girl or even your grandma.  I LOVE one stop shopping since it saves me on shipping from a bunch of different stores!  

Another thing I just love about Purple Toes Jewelry is the price!  When I first saw the stunning pictures of all the pieces of jewelry, I thought that everything would be boutique prices (read: very expensive.)  But it's not like that at all.  I think it's very comparable to any local store you might go to in your town to buy jewelry.  However, it looks expensive.  And it's important to me that a gift item looks like a good quality piece.  I would hate to give someone a gift that was cheap and fell apart.

And most importantly, all these things are HANDMADE.  With LOVE.  By a REAL PERSON.  I can't emphasize this enough.  Instead of running to the discount store or mall, support someone who is really invested in their work.  Buy something that is crafted with care.  Something original that isn't going to be on everybody in town!

Donna is giving away all of the items pictured here in this post.  

HERE'S HOW TO WIN:

1. Go to the Purple Toes Jewelry shop and then leave a comment telling me what your favorite item in the shop is.  You can post the URL if you'd like.  This gets you ONE entry.

2. Blog about this giveaway.  Please leave a separate comment with your link.  I do check the links and I'll even leave you some love, how about that?  This gets you another entry.

3. Buy something from the shop.  Let me know, I'll check with Donna and you'll get yourself yet another entry into the drawing.

This drawing will end on December 15 at midnight.  Random names will be drawn and posted on December 16.  Good luck!

  1. Fabulous giveaway!

    Purple Toes has so many lovely pieces, but my favorite is the Aqua Glass Bead necklace with the Aqua Rose on Antique Brass Round Filigree (thats a mouthful!) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18312679

    I have a necklace obsession, and that is a gorgeous and elegant statement piece.

  2. This is so nice giveaway! I have looked and looked- so many items to choose, and so hard to make up my mind. It was hard.
    My favorite as of this moment is: Sterling Silver Love Red Glass Antique Silver Heart Necklace
    Those earrings that match the necklace are really sweet too. But since I had to decide on one item- let it be the necklace!
